Belt Test Karate Online

How It Works

I will explain our shotokan belt requirements and how to test and I will also explain the karate order of belts at the bottom of this page.

Some karate belt rank differ from Dojo to Dojo.

For example, we have orange, red, then yellow belt, some Dojo switch the orange and red around. 

But the ultimate belt remains the same, Black Belt!

belts in karate order

The online karate belt test is exactly the same as a regular Dojo karate belt test, but you have no one to partner.

Now this is an issue, but it’s an issue we can address and it’s something that should not stop people practicing karate and advancing through the ranks.

We are planning a yearly residential course where people can meet, socialize and work on the karate partner work, in a safe environment.

We have developed our online karate Dojo as a resource for people already training at a Dojo and for people who cannot attend a karate Dojo. 

Sensei Linden Huckle has been practicing karate for over 45 years and delivering online content for the last 15 years. This website is brand new and we are all very excited about the future.

We understand that many people are unable to attend a professional Karate Dojo, but are desperate to practice karate and progress through the belt system.

We hope to make this possible for those people and unleash the fascinating art of karate to all!

So check out our karate programs and we look forward to seeing you in our online Dojo. Oss!

Belt Test Karate

Every belt test karate has is slightly different and should gradually progress in difficulty as you progress through the ranks.

Once you have worked through your current course and feel you are ready to test.

You can then move onto the ‘Online Test Requirements’ that belong to the course you are working on.

Each belt has a course and test requirements sections. ie. ‘Course 1 Blue Belt 10th Kyu’ has the ‘Online Test Requirements For Blue Belt 10th Kyu’.

Once you are happy with your techniques, film yourself and then upload to your personal youtube account.

Make the video ‘unlisted’, so no one else can see it on Youtube apart from the people you send the link to.

Then email the video link to Sensei Huckle at ~

As a side note with traditional shotokan karate belt order, it’s the training that’s important not the particular shotokan karate belt system a Dojo uses and between Shotokan karate Dojo, there will only be one or two belts that are different. So try and focus on the quality of the karate because if the quality is good, you will fast track through the ranks anyway.
